Lustenau, Austria – IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, a leading supplier of innovative wireless solutions, has supplied PT Terminal Petikemas Surabaya (TPS), one of Indonesia’s international terminals with Terminal Tracker – helping the operators to achieve their vision of becoming a “reliable terminal with service excellence”.

TPS, who is committed to maintaining their prominent position as the Gateway to Eastern Indonesia, have used IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ Terminal Tracker solution since 2015. Ever since TPS has worked hard that their terminals continue to provide the level of services required to bolster up the economic growth of Indonesia and to give the best possible services to their customers. Terminal Tracker helps TPS to fulfil their proclaimed vision by enabling them to work better.

The main objective of the solution is to perform Position Detection (PDS) and reporting moves performed by the Container Handling Equipment (CHE) directly to the terminal operating system (TOS). The fully automated solution removes the need for human interaction with the onboard display by automatically completing moves and ensuring an up to date and accurate yard inventory. This not only allows TPS to work more efficiently but also minimizes the risk associated with people working in the yard while delivering full visibility of the Terminals inventory.
